Author Info
Connie Willis
Connie Willis has won more Hugo and Nebula awards than any other writer in the field. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley in 1967, she wrote "true confessions" stories for magazines while teaching at elementary and junior high schools. In 1982 she turned her attention fully to writing. Her first novel, WATER WITCH, co-written with Cynthia Felice, was published in 1982. That same year, Willis won Nebula Awards for two short stories, "Fire Watch" and "A Letter to the Clearys", the first of which also won the Hugo Award the following year. Her first solo novel, LINCOLN'S DREAMS, won the prestigious John W. Campbell Award in 1987. Winning the Hugo and Nebula awards for DOOMSDAY BOOK, released in 1992, again brought her great acclaim. Since then, Willis, while continuing to write numerous short stories, has written a series of very short humorous novels, including BELLWEATHER and UNCHARTED TERRITORIES. Willis has edited several collections of award-winning short fiction, she has been the M.C. at several science fiction conferences, and her own work continues to bring her new fans and new awards. In 1998, the Colorado School of Mines' Mobile Robots Project named a newly designed robot after her, along with fellow authors Lois McMaster Bujold, and Ursula K. Le Guin.
Praise
"[D]rolleries and epiphanies galore. Put this at the top of your Must buy holiday shopping list."
"If there is anything to criticize in this collection, it is that it's too short--more stories would certainly have been a welcome addition. But Willis compensates by offering a gift at the book's end--a list of Christmas books and movies to enjoy on cold December nights. It is this generous spirit, of both the writer and her stories, that will keep readers returning to MIRACLE AND OTHER CHRISTMAS STORIES every year."
